      re: from bulldog pipex to sky

      There is no way around it, the Bulldog line is a LLU line, BT need to take ownership of it again before you can do anything else. Once BT take line rental ownership you can take sky talk (calls only) but cannot take Sky talk line rental until the BT contract is over. This is the unfortunate thing about having a LLU provided land line.

      You can take your calls via Sky or BT, the choice is still there, your BB can be via Sky as soon as your line is showing correctly on the BT database.
